A gripping and touching production, In Loyal Company is the remarkable story of a missing World War II soldier facing desperate odds.Based on the incredible true story of Arthur Robinson’s experiences as a Prisoner of War during World War II, this poignant tale of survival and sacrifice is written and performed by his great-nephew David William Bryan.
Working as a packer on the Liverpool docks in 1941, Arthur ‘Joe’ Robinson signs up as a private in the 18th Reconnaissance Division after the death of his best friend during the Blitz. The ship to his deployment in Singapore is sunk by Japanese bombers and Joe is declared missing. It’s another four years before he finally makes it home.
In Loyal Company is a fresh take on the war epic and promises to move audiences around the country. From the Liverpool docks to Prisoner of War camps in Thailand, the stunning sound and lighting design by Jonny Ryan immerses the audience directly in the action. The production brings to life the reality of World War II as it shines a light on our former servicemen and women, their courage and loyalty in the face of extreme adversity.
